Spoiler alert: beauty isn’t actually just skin deep.
But it’s what on the inside that counts, says her longtime makeup artist, Molly R. Stern.
“The thing that is so wonderful about working with Reese, is that she trusts that she’s hiring people who know what they’re doing. She doesn’t micromanage the process at all. She’s open and easygoing. She always seems to be pretty happy. She has an amazing inner confidence of who she is. She isn’t trying to change things about herself. She has admirable self-acceptance,” says Stern of the Oscar winner and mom of three.
There you have it, folks. You want a piece of Reese? Work on your mojo.
But if that doesn’t pan out, try a few of the Chantecaille products Stern used on Witherspoon. On her eyes: the chrome luxe eye duo in Monte Carlo. On her pucker, matte chic in Marisa and lip chic in Lily, two new shades for spring.
And Stern doesn’t skim when it comes to skincare. “I love ReVive — I love Natura Bisse. They’re rich with nutrients. They don’t clog pores. I do like luxury skincare. That’s the stuff you save up for. We get dryer as we get older, so keeping the skin moist is important. Beautiful skin equals beautiful makeup. I love the Chantecaille Rose de Mai line. It’s amazing,” says Stern.
